      Out of stock
  CORGI 1:72 SCALE COLLECTORS CLUB MEMBERS EXCLUSIVE MODEL: AA33615 is this excellent model of PANAVIA Tornado GR4 ZA492, 617 Squadron, RAF Lossiemouth, Scotland, 2013. 'DAMBUSTERS 70th ANNIVERSARY'. Limited edition of only 500 models produced, with uniquely numbered certificate

No. 617 Squadron was a Royal Air Force aircraft squadron based at RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland. It operated the Tornado GR4 in the ground attack and reconnaissance role. In October 2013 it left for Afghanistan as part of the British deployment prior to its being disbanded in the Spring of 2014. It is due to reform in 2016 as the RAF's first F-35 squadron. 617 Squadron RAF will forever be associated with the most famous raid undertaken by the RAF during the Second World War, the Dams Raid. This is an event the Squadron rightly commemorates every year and the 2012 being the 70th Anniversary, two Tornado GR4s were displayed throughout Europe carrying a specially repainted and striking tail fin design to mark the event. However, despite the tail repaint, the aircraft were still very effective warplanes, remaining fully operational until temporary disbandment in Spring 2014. Based at RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland, 617 Squadron specialised in using its Tornados for dangerous low level missions, as well as anti-shipping strikes and standoff attacks using cruise missiles.
